My 5 month old son has had diarrhea for 2 weeks! He's tested negative for rotavirus, what else could be causing this? He's not dehydrated, has a great appetite, and is still putting on weight. He is perfectly happy, seems to feel great but he has diarrhea 2-6 times a day. I've tried giving him bananas and rice cereal, per doctor's instructions to firm things up, but all that does is make the poop a darker color. Does anyone out there have any ideas what could be causing this? The only things he's ever eaten are formula, rice & oatmeal cereal (lots of times), peas(twice), sweet potatoes(once), and bananas(not until after this started). No allergies or illnesses of any kind run in our family.
